Hello to all, yes I'm still here, but I've been a bit crook for the last month or so, I have had a heart attack and triple bypass surgery in RPA hospital Sydney on the 1st Sept, been back home now for a bit over three weeks and recovering well.

Unable to do much for the next while, but following Dr's rehab exercise program.

looking forward to being able to oneday get out in the bush again and have a detect, you realize how much you miss something when you cant do it.

Geez Dave, that's not good.
Over the worst part, so now hoping you are well on the way to a full recovery.
Reckon it won't be too long before you and Veronica are out swinging again.
Cheers Dave, M&C

Gosh, Dave, that’s serious stuff. Glad to hear you are on the mend.  This getting older is a bug#ger. People who survive a heart attack have an excellent recovery rate these day. 😀⛏⛏

That's not a bad effort dave,you're getting through it and that's the main thing.
On the bright side ,you have a brand new set of exhaust pipes in the ticker and you should be up and running in no time.
Keep that detector oiled and polished for it's next outing. V25

Adhering to your Doctors rehab program of proper food intake & exercise, is the key to a healthy & speedy recovery Dave.
Like moredeep has said, hang on in there, you're doing well & you'll be back to normal in no time.
Take care & speedy recovery m8

Dave, that is a surprise. You seemed well when I saw you at Tibooburra in June. I guess this sort of thing can come along pretty quick. All the best to you. I hope you get fit and well again soon. Maybe we'll see you and Veronica again at Tib, next year.

Yes it came as shock to me as well, you think that your reasonably fit and healthy and then all of a sudden you not. But like they said the arteries don't block up over night it is an accumulation over the years and you just seem to get used to it until it is to late, and wham a heart attack strikes seemingly with out warning.

Yes I certainly hope we can catch up with you and Cheryl again somewhere in the great outdoors. Very Happy

I am recovering very well and quickly according to the Dr, I'm doing the exercise etc that they recommend and everything is going well, but is sure quiets you down for a bit.

Wow Dave, I'm just pleased to hear that you are recovering really well after what must have been a scary event, did you manage to recover all the gold dust they took from your arteries Smile

Good health to you mate.

Hi Dave, that is a real shock. Best wishes to you and Veronica.

Just wondering, do you have a family history of heart disease ? cheers Pete.

Thanks Guys

Hey Jim, you reckon gold dust in the arteries, so it wasn't plaque after all Laughing

Pete (piston broke) no not really any family history, and I guess that made it a bigger shock.

cheers dave
